TUESDAY APRIL 3, 19U).
This Is the day the House of Repre
sentatives takes up the discussion of
Hawnll's territorial law. Tho final
vote will bo taken on Thursday nt 1
o'clock. If the peoplo havo prayers,
prepare to make them now, that tho
policy of delay will recrlvo no recogni
tion In Washington.
After the Council of State gets
through with the Couit of Claims the
financing of the Court is likely to be In
such Bhapo as to recelvo n fair degree
of favor from the people. Several
changes In tho general Fcheme of the
Court would have been noted had tho
Executive taken the troublo to con
sider tho Interests of tho general pub
lic In toe first place.
The report of the Council rf Stato
committee on Interior Department,
given In full In this Issue, Rhows that
the othor Islands will not be left en
tirely In the cold If the commltteo h:u
Its way. There can bo no good rcasor
why the expenditures from tho loat
fund and every other fund should no
be increased in dealing with the othei
islands. Tho committed recognize,
that this Is a million dollar country
and nothing is gained lor the present
or futuro by a parsimonious policy.
Minister Young nnd the Executive
Council are to be commended for their
prompt action In connection with tho
sower contract. The $20,000 paid for
a gain of four months In the comple
tion of the work will be more than
made up to tho taxpayers by ndvantago
gained In fighting the plague. In pub
lic affairs as well as private, good bust
ness administration often demands
that money must bo expended liberally
In order to make a Having. As was
first outlined by tho Bulletin, Minister
Young has followed tho sentiment of
tho business community nnd tho tax
payers by making tho Item of time
factor of first Importance.
A PLAIN 8TATEMENT.
The open letter to Republicans pub
lUhed In another column states iu con
else and straightforward manner the
exact position of Hawaiian Republl
cans in their relation with tho Nation-
.al League. The quotation mado from
Secretary Stine demonstrates conclu
sively the contention of tho Bulletin
that Mr. Shingle cannot transfer bin
authority from the Lcaguo to an In
dividual club. By virtue of this Instruc
tion and the result of the meeting of
Republicans held in this city, he is
forced to withhold action until r ter
ritorial convention is called. Tho Bul
letin sees no occasion for scorning tho
gathering to bo held this evening In
Murray Hall. There Is nothing In Mr.
Shingle's statements to warrant the
conclusion that any Republican gath
ering lacks honesty of conviction. The
Republican party is not nn oligarchi
cal organization that refuses a tearing
to any believers In the party principles.
It is apparent, however, that the pre
vailing sentiment is opposed to Imme
diate organization. When tho territor
ial bill Is passed and tho time arrives
for action, nil membors of the party
may rest assured there will bo no lack
of Interest throughout nil tho Islands,
nnd there will bo no question as to the
representative character of tho terri
torial convention that will bo called
presumably In this city.
In the meantime It is to bo hoped
that tho advocates of lmraedtato action
will recognlzo the Importance of har
monious action, and the nbsoluto neccs
stty for following the Generally accept
ed phlnclplcs of party organization
laid down by tho national commltteo.

commltteo consider that good water
service is very essential, we recom
mend that the item puss nt $120,000.
Seventy-five Fire Hydrants, Honolu
lu, $3,000. Your commltteo recommend
thnt this item bo amended to read as
follows: "150 Firo Hydrants, Honolu
lu. $6,000." This is considered abso
lutely necessary owing to the new
pumping plant at Kallhl nnd the new
hoso companies which the committee

Wo find that $1G,000 only was nsk"cd

Would have been able to havo expended
more under tho appropriation under
last Loan Act. This he has not been
ablo to accomplish owing to dolayu oc
casioned by dlfllcultle4 of shipment
from San Francisco and from Honolu

ComDleto Flro Apparatus, $G5,000,
Your committee recommend that this
item be stricken out and thoro be In
serted In Its placo tho following:
"Flro Apparatus for Steam Tug, $5,
000." Tho Superintendent of Public
Works states that $5,000 is sufflclcnt to
supply the steam tug with all tho fire
apparatus necessary, ana ns your com
mltteo have previously recommended
In their report on Act 2 they do not
believe that the aovcrnment'wlll be
allowed to conduct a towage business,
and thereforo a new steam tug for tho
harbor Is unnecessary.
